Illustrators Wanted

The East Hampton Library is seeking high school artists to illustrate poems written by fellow young adults for the library's recent poetry contest. The drawings and poems, including the two winners, "My Phoenix" by Mai Ismail and "Peppermint Tea" by Joselin Pesantez, will be published magazine-style. Teen artists interested in taking part can send an email to [email protected].

Also for teens, this weekend's take-and-make project through the East Hampton Library is bookmarks with positive messages. Decorated bookmarks returned to the library by Monday will earn their makers community service credit, and will be placed into Y.A. books for other teens to discover when the books are checked out. Kits must be reserved ahead of time by signing up online at, and should be picked up at the library tomorrow afternoon between 2:30 and 4:45 p.m.

On Wednesday the library has invited kids ages 8 to 11 to make patriotic wreaths in advance of Memorial Day. Materials can be picked up in person ahead of the virtual workshop, which is from 4 to 5 p.m. Sign-up is on the library website; a Google Meet link will be sent out before the program starts.

Book Club

Teens who love graphic novels will appreciate a virtual book club tailored to their interests on Fridays at 7 p.m. through the Montauk Library. This month's book is "Ms. Marvel -- No Normal" by Wilson Alpona. Advance registration via email to [email protected] is required.
